Emporio Armani ditches menswear for co-ed show in September

The Italian house will present its SS19 menswear and womenswear collections together later this year

With the fast-approaching SS19 menswear shows, all those participating will be in the thick of it, finalising all the last minute details for their collections. Choosing to forgo the chaos is Emporio Armani, ditching its regular menswear offering in favour for a co-ed show on the womenswear schedule in September.

It is not currently known whether or not this will be a permanent move, or just for this season but Armani is not the first Italian label to go co-ed. Both Gucci and Dsquared2 combined their collections in favour of two shows a year, on the womenswear, and menswear schedules respectively.

Fans of founder and designer Giorgio Armani’s work need not worry, his eponymous label will still present its SS19 menswear collection on June 18.
